When ranchers are looking for bull calves for sale, it would be in their best interest to do some in-depth research to determine who is providing the best bull calves for sale at the most agreeable price.
Some factors to consider when scouting out prospective bull calf sellers include:
Quality of Bulls
Buyers should seek sellers that specialize in angus bulls with superior genetics. Making the first prerequisite to consider a potential seller can leave many sellers out, their cattle not of the highest quality and/or genetic composition.
Look for a farm that has been in operation for many decades. Farms that have been around a long time are proven to be successful in this very competitive industry.
Tales of the Past, Visions of the Future
Not often one of the first things buyers consider in a potential seller, but looking at these variables can really be a good barometer in gauging the reliability and quite frankly the care and passion that ranching company has in providing the very best product on the market. Superior ranchers and farms have this information easily accessible on their website.
Do they Line-breed?
Industry leaders carefully select foundation sires from early structured Performance-testing programs and from the Certified Meat Sire Program.
Through the right research and wise investment, the right bull calf herd can ultimately become the foundation for many future generations of prime angus bulls. The diligent, hard work put in now could most certainly become one of the rancher’s most valued investments that will pay off for generations to come.
